Instagram says it now has the right to sell your photos

I thought this was worth a read.

Re: Instagram says it now has the right to sell your photos

Now that Facebook owns Instagram and presumably has bits of its code in its main app, does this also mean they feel that have the right to sell pictures uploaded straight to Facebook?

Not that I ever use it but I have deleted my account anyhow, even if its just to add one more number to a list of deleted users.

Re: Instagram says it now has the right to sell your photos

Well, I cant say I understand the legality of it but from what I understand they are able to take photos you've taken and use them and profit from them. Like if you've taken a picture of a meal and tagged it as being from a specific place, that establishment can contact Instagram, buy the picture from them and use it for their own promotional purposes, like companies can use Instagram as like a 'stock photo' shop and purchase the ones they want.

I dont have many pictures on there, but I do have pictures of my son on there, which I know are hugely unlikely to be turned into anything promotional but im not taking any chances so Ill be deleting my account with them just as soon as I can figure out how.

Re: Instagram says it now has the right to sell your photos

I never understood the fuss about it in the first place. It's just yet another place to upload pictures. Never had an account with them, never will.

If there's any dodgy happenings with Facebook I'll happily get shot of that too, I never actually use it anymore anyway.

Never understood why it was so popular to begin with.

Re: Instagram says it now has the right to sell your photos

I use it because it makes it easy to post to multiple social networks at once.
